    A pair of crashes, almost 30 miles apart in two different counties, slowed traffic along busy Interstate 95 in Pennsylvania Wednesday morning.

    A pickup truck hauling a trailer, a car and a tractor-trailer crashed in the northbound lanes near the Route 413 (Bristol) Exit in Bucks County shortly after 6:30 a.m. All lanes were blocked for more than an hour, causing at least a 5-mile backup.

    The force of the Bristol crash left the pickup truck with front-end damage and its trailer on top of the sedan.

    Two people suffered minor injuries in the crash.

    A short time earlier, a car overturned and blocked the northbound ramp of I-95 to the Platt Bridge, near the Philadelphia Airport. No word yet if anyone was hurt in the wreck.

    NBC10 First Alert Traffic reporter Jessica Boyington reported that traffic was moving again by 8:30 a.m. at both scenes. Expect continues delays in Bristol as the wreck remained on the side of the highway.
